Hello

Many thanks for the replies.

It sounds like the TortoseSVN team want to keep things roughly "lock
step", I think better to be "completely lock step".

I would go with: TortoiseSVN_1.7.5_Build001

Just increment the Build number when they make an updated delivery of
TortiseSVN that uses svn1.7.5

Its more confusing to use a similar but different numbering scheme
(1.7.7 and 1.7.5) in my view.

Best regards, Jon
